Healing Bone Broth

Every winter, usually just after Christmas, nearly every family member in our house comes down with an illness of some sort. We pass it around the house until there is no energy left and every has had at least some sort of crud.

Not this year.

Chicken Bone Broth {in the Instant Pot}

Whether it’s made from beef marrow bones, or a turkey or chicken carcass, we’ve been drinking some sort of bone broth on a daily basis. Everyone around us is catching the flu, a random stomach bug, head colds, you name it. Not us. Not this year.

And while I’d like to attribute it to our healthy ketogenic lifestyle, I don’t think that’s the sole reason.

I’m obviously no doctor, so I’m not about to give medical advice. However, I can tell you that a daily dose of bone broth has kept bugs away from my family. Because of that, we’ve been roasting or smoking 4 chickens at a time and keeping a steady flow of this tasty broth on hand at all times.

Pure Chicken Bone Broth

And not only is this an incredibly healthy thing to drink daily, but by making it yourself, you’re saving tons of money and keeping preservatives, artificial colors, and even sugar (yes, sugar is added to commercial brands!!) out of your system.

We go through this stuff too fast to bother freezing it, but if you won’t be drinking it within a week, freezing small portions is the best method to preserve the broth for future use.

  • 1 Chicken Carcass preferably one that was seasoned with only salt and pepper
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion
  • 3-4 cloves Garlic peeled and smashed
  • 1 sprig Fresh Thyme
  • 1 sprig Frech Rosemary
  • 1 sprig Fresh Sage


  1. Add all ingredients to the inner pot of an Instant Pot (we have a 6qt). If you are using a chicken carcass that is already stuffed with onion, garlic, and herbs, don't add the extras.

  2. Fill the inner pot with water to the "Max Fill" line. Place the lid on the pot and twist to lock, set the knob to the "Seal" position, and press the "Soup" button (or manual on High pressure for 30 minutes).

  3. Once the cycle is complete, you can do wither NPR or QPR (whichever you have the time for). NPR is best but you'll still get a good broth with QPR.

  4. Remove as much of the carcass and veggies with a large slotted spoon and set aside in a bowl (do not discard yet). Place a small wire mesh strainer in a canning funnel and put it on a canning jar (we prefer to use quart and half gallon jars). Pour the broth directly into the jars. Tightly screw on the lids.

  5. Put the carcass and veggies back in the Instant Pot, fill half full with water this time. Repeat the cooking and canning process the same way you did it the first time.

  6. After the second batch of broth, remove any remaining chicken from the carcass and reserve to add to the broth for a heartier soup or to add to casseroles or any other dish you want.

  7. Store broth in the fridge for up to a week. For longer storage, freeze the broth in silicone molds (of your preferred size). Remove from molds once frozen solid and store them in a zip-top bag in the freezer for up to 6 months.
